DAY 1 ARRIVE IN DUBLIN, IRELAND
Céad míle fáilte! A hundred-thousand welcomes! Check into your hotel. The rest of the day is
free to relax in Ireland’s capital city. This evening, meet your Tour Director and traveling
companions for a welcome dinner at your hotel.
DAY 2 DUBLIN
The morning’s orientation drive in the “Fair City” includes statue-lined O’Connell Street, elegant
Georgian squares with their tall red brick townhouses, colorful doors and wrought iron-decorated
windows, Oscar Wilde’s Trinity College, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The afternoon is at leisure
for you to explore the city further, or you could join an optional excursion to the Guinness
Storehouse and learn all about the world-famous beer: from how Guinness is made to the
ancient craft of barrel-making in the cooperage. The evening ends with a sample of “The Black
Stuff,” followed by dinner.
DAY 3 DUBLIN–GALWAY–CLIFFS OF MOHER–ENNIS
Your day begins with a drive to Galway, a popular seaside destination and a buzzing
cosmopolitan center with colorful shops and a busy café and bar culture. Then, a scenic route
takes you across the limestone plateau of The Burren with its strange and beautiful karst
landscape to the 668-foot CLIFFS OF MOHER, where you savor the breathtaking panorama of
the Clare coast.
DAY 4 ENNIS–RING OF KERRY–KILLARNEY
A day full of splendid scenery as you head south and stop at quaint Adare with its pretty thatched
cottages. Continue on to Killorglin on Dingle Bay to join the famed RING OF KERRY for a 100-
mile panoramic drive around the island’s southwestern tip. There is plenty to focus your camera
on here: sparkling seascapes, mountains dotted with brightly colored farmhouses, winding lanes
bordered with subtropical vegetation, and the breathtaking panorama of the Lakes of Killarney
from Ladies View. Travel on to the popular resort of Killarney for an overnight stay.
DAY 5 KILLARNEY–BLARNEY–WATERFORD
Across the Kerry Mountains and through County Cork, the route brings you to Blarney, renowned
for its magical Kissing Stone. There is time here for lunch, to walk up to the castle, and to shop
for traditional Irish handicrafts. In the afternoon, proceed via Cork to Waterford, a stronghold
founded by the Danish Vikings, and home to the famous crystal. After dinner this evening, enjoy
an IRISH COFFEE DEMONSTRATION.
DAY 6 WATERFORD–KILKENNY–DUBLIN
Kilkenny, one of Ireland’s prettiest towns with medieval cobblestone streets and Old-World
charm, is your first destination today. You will have time to discover the town on your own, visit the castle or the Design Centre or simply wander through the charming streets and be part of the
Irish day-to-day life. Then, travel back to Dublin, and tonight, as a fitting farewell to Ireland,
consider an optional evening with dinner, followed by dance, song, and laughter.
